The owners of this serene stone lodge on a hilltop in Briarcliff Manor brought their affinity for East Asian design to this kitchen and master bath renovation. The highly refined material palette in the kitchen was developed in conjunction with Henrybuilt kitchens and was heavily influenced by the existing warm mahogany trim throughout the house. The master bath pulled inspiration from the Japanese garden surrounding the master suite. The design is greatly enhanced by custom-crafted shoji screens, floating wood shelves, and stone vessel sink basins atop a tansu cabinet vanity built by a traditional Japanese woodworker in Brooklyn. The other centerpiece is a Hinoki Ofuro soaking tub that was built in Alaska and is set in a pool of polished black pebbles. The attention to detail and extreme care taken to coordinate the finishes and fixtures by the owners, architect, lighting designer, woodworker, and builder all contribute to the modern elegance of this kitchen and master bath.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY:  "We had a great experience working with Michael Lewis and his team on the first phase of our renovation project and will work with them again on the second half, too. Michael created a beautiful design for our bedroom-addition that corrected a decades-old renovation and produced an end result that fits seamlessly into the original Dutch Colonial style. We really appreciated the time that he and the team took to understand our goals and work with us in shaping the design. And their assistance in selecting a contractor and managing the renovation process has been invaluable. We highly recommend the firm."
